Vintage: Is It Worth It? Roland TR-808 Analog Drum Machine vs CR8000 vs TR606 vs Behringer RD8

Zach Marr is back with one of our favorite questions: Is It Worth It? This time he's talking about the Roland TR-808, one of the most prolific and legendary drum machines of the last 40 years. From Marvin Gaye to Kanye West, these sounds have made a name in hip-hop, R&B, techno, and more-- but at a current market price of anywhere from $5000 to $8000, is it worth it to get an original TR-808? Or does a budget option (or digital recreation) make more sense for the modern musician? Watch the video, hear the sounds (with some budget alternatives) and tell us what you think!
